Hello,

If I create a custom CentOS image install iso using kickstart, can someone then go and take that iso and boot it easily on a empty Linux machine?  Can someone help explain the process someone would need to perform to install a custom CentOS iso image file on their empty Linux machine?

They should boot with the ISO disk.

Then it should show a boot prompt like

boot:

Open in new window


Just type
linux ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg

Open in new window
